This CBD watering hole might come from the same crew behind globally renowned cocktail destination The Everleigh, but the two are absolute worlds apart. Wild child Heartbreaker is an American-style dive bar through and through, oozing cool-kid attitude and promising good times aplenty. We're talking red neon signs, black leather booths, a pool table and a jukebox chock full of old-school rock 'n' roll. With a 3am closing time Thursday through Saturday, no less.

Refreshment options include a solid slew of both local and US craft beers, with a tidy tap rotation serving up plenty of hits from the likes of Hop Nation, Grifter, Philter and Stomping Ground. The fridge is a goldmine, too, starring the likes of Mountain Culture's Double Red IPA ($18) and The Mill's Mosaic Pale Ale ($11).

A strong selection of whisky, mezcal and tequila is primed for rocking nights out, while the cocktail lineup showcases the full range of Everleigh Bottling Co batched sips — from famed classics like the negroni ($21) and martini ($21), to sparkling creations like the gin-infused Fruit Cup ($18).
